Her father was stationed there while serving in the military. Sometime later, they moved to the Denver Colorado area where they lived most of her life. Jeannine loved little children, when her mother was a day care provider and foster parent, Jeannine loved to entertain the little ones and help care for them. She learned many life skills from her mother, washing and drying dishes, putting them away, dusting, vacuuming and making her bed. She brought much joy to all around her. Jeannine and her mother moved back to Washington in November of 1992 to be closer to family. In October 1998, they moved to Waterville, so Jeannine could participate in the Twin Valley Workshop at Greenleaf. She lived in a home with six other ladies, who worked in the workshop during the days. She loved going there and participating in the activities. This was her home until April of 2015, when she needed more care and was moved to Linn Community Nursing Home. Jeannine loved going to church and dancing. Preceding her in death were her parents; aunts and uncles, Harold Oehmke, Lawrence and Madelyn Oehmke and Dean and Marie Winter. Survivors include her aunts, Donnette Oehmke, Linn, Bonnie LaVelle, Polk, Neb. and her aunt and uncle Charles and Miriam Doremas, Colorado Springs, Colo.; and many cousins and friends.
